Top O' The Mornin'

This is a 'hurry up' table to celebrate St. Patrick's Day at Kathleen's blog crawl (cuisinekathleen.com).  I've been busy purging and packing for the big move later this year and haven't had much time for tablescaping.  When Kathleen announced her annual crawl was on, I decided to put those other tasks aside and enjoy the fun of creating a little table setting. Thanks, Kathleen, for hosting!  I needed a diversion!!

A lot of my stash has been packed up already but I was able to find a few green items to set an Irish Springtime breakfast.  
We won't be having the traditional sausages, bacon, eggs or even blood pudding (?!) but a lighter fair of cereal and breads with hot tea.
Vintage Pyrex bowls and salad plates are paired with modern-looking Dollar Store dishes.   The  green juice glasses and teapot are thrift store finds.  The Depression glass tray will hold our breads and is a gift from my dear Mother-in-Law.  I found the mugs at Joann's Fabric last year.  They are perfect to hold a good portion of morning tea!  
The daffodils are blooming in my garden so I brought a few in for our table.
Yes, my window is open!  Spring is almost here and we are SO excited!  The foundation guys say they should be ready to begin digging the basement next week, 
if there isn't much more rain!  

Here's wishing you a Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

Your table is very sweet and doesn't look hastily put together at all. I happen to love the color green, so am swooning over all of the great tables at the crawl. I love your plates, mugs with shamrocks, and teapot on the pedestal.
